17-year-old Toyosaki Aki

Toyosaki Aki

During 2003-04, Toyosaki Aki was on a local TV variety show called Doyoubi wa Naisho!! There’s not much information available about it, but I found that the TV show actually had a website where I found a few photos from the show, Aki-chan’s profile, and some cute drawings. She was very sweet even then.

On the website, there are also some posts by Aki and the other girl who appeared with her on the show but I haven’t read all of them. Neither are they worth translating. What I remember from them is that Aki-chan’s class had to run some 3 kilometers in snow during PE class – quite a rare sight in Tokushima, the snow I mean – and Aki-chan, regardless of the cold, had a happy time running. Smiling through all the times, huh? I think I can picture that, somehow. I believe she would laugh even if they tested some torture devices on her *facepalm*. Another thing I can remember is that she had a hard time learning differential and integral equations. She added that she wasn’t very good at Maths. Well, doesn’t it make her even cuter? ^^’
